The NDC campaign team has reacted to a video making rounds on social media which sought to create the impression that the NDC flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama was sharing money on his tour of the Bono Region.
In a video widely circulated on social media, the former President could be seen occassionally reaching for his pocket and giving out something which was not so clear in the video to random supporters.
Though the NPP had alleged that the NDC flagbearer was sharing cash on his campaign, the NDC campaign team has officially debunked those assertions, insisting that the former President only gave out branded Nose Masks.
Below is the full statement issued by the NDC campaign team………….
DISREGARD FAKE REPORTS OF MAHAMA SHARING MONEY
The JOHN MAHAMA 2020 Campaign has become aware of false, misleading and malicious publications by certain online portals, which claim that the presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr John Dramani Mahama, shared money to his supporters on Monday when he resumed his tour of the Bono Region.
The said reports are untrue and completely borne out of the desperate and fertile imaginations of the author(s).
For the records, and as it has become typical of Mr Mahama on his tour of the regions, he shares JOHN MAHAMA 2020 branded nose masks to people and occasionally talks about how to stop the spread of the coronavirus disease. This morning was no exception when Mr Mahama shared several hundreds of his campaign’s branded nose masks, aprons and T-shirts.
The general public is therefore entreated to disregard the piece of fake news and lazy journalism, which unsuccessfully attempts to turn Mr Mahama’s act of kindness into a weapon against his campaign.
